LLA Summer League & Championships
Any league from an Alberta or Saskatchewan District who is in good standing may register team(s) through the Little League Alberta office.
(Alberta League Volunteers supplied to a Little League Alberta casino event by a league who note this on their casino sign up confirmation will result in a $100 credit for their league off of their summer ball registration fees up to a maximum of $500).
Fees & Refunds:
Once a team has registered, there are no refunds.
Registration fee is $425.00 per team.
A special all-inclusive handling fee of $50 per team will provide each rostered coach and player on that team with a Championship Weekend Drawstring Bag. Tournament Hosts may use the bags to put special
Summer ball batting shirts are available for $15.00 per player/coach and can be ordered on the registration form and picked up on Championship weekend.
Additional costs billed to the Little League the team is registered through will be a portion of the umpires’ fees for each game scheduled for your team.
Registration Fees will cover all logistical, administrative, and financial support (including credit card services) to the program.
It also guarantees your entry into a Sectional Championship Weekend tournament hosted by Little League Alberta or Little League Saskatchewan. Little League Alberta will provide a Championship Sectional Banner to the winning team and awards to Champions and Runner Ups.
There are expectations for hosts when they take on this important responsibility. Please see the “Tournament Hosting Expectations” that outlines the requirements to host a seeding/regular weekend. There are additional requirements to host a Championship weekend event and these are also outlined in the “Tournament Hosting Expectations”.
Program support from our provincial casino funding in Alberta is the major source of resources for baseballs and awards to each weekend event plus Championship Weekend held in Alberta.
Schedules should be coordinated with the Little League Alberta President/CEO and the host Tournament Director. Teams will be placed in events 11 days prior to each weekend, although teams need to be cognizant that due to circumstances beyond LLA control, they may change prior to the event. Schedules will be posted on the new LLA website, tournament app, and at the fields for easy access. They should allow for a minimum of 4 games per team on each weekend, unless a Minor or Major A team requests to play only 3. 3-6 team tournaments will be the goal.
A pre-tournament meeting, for all championships which is mandatory for all teams to attend, should be scheduled by June 15 of the year of the tournament.
Any revenue obtained by operating any tournament or championship such as concessions, 50/50 draws, raffles, programs, etc. shall be retained by the host to cover expenses over the funding received from Little League Alberta. Should the revenue and funding not be enough to cover costs, the host league and/or District assume that liability.
THE SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN RELEASED SHOULD TEAMS DROP OUT OF EVENTS OR REQUEST AND PAY THE FEE FOR SCHEDULE CHANGES FOR OTHER REASONS.
